A New York Times #1 best-selling author of Who’s Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone, as well as a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fortune and many other leading publications, Keith’s gained over 20 years of experience, from the C-Suite to founding his own companies, and distilled those years and experiences into practices and solutions he brings to every engagement.
Some of the clients we've worked with
Rob Whitfield has spent more than 20 years in consulting with the specific intent of helping clients deliver a return on investment from behavior change in the workplace.

A magnetic speaker and storyteller with a self-deprecating sense of humor, Rob is able to connect people to ideas and inspire them to think differently, and critically, hold them accountable to taking action that will lead to new behaviors and results. When Rob became CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight and Keith’s business partner, he brought his invaluable blue-chip experience to bear in shaping the vision and strategy of the firm. Rob is the recipient of multiple awards, including Top 10 CEO’s To Watch and Heart Centered Leadership, and he writes prolifically in the space at the boundary of personal empowerment to enable corporate change at scale, having been published in CEO Today, Training Industry, HR.com, Training Magazine, and many more.
